David Troutman has worked in the restaurant industry for over 45 years; the last 32 of which were spent as co-owner of Scargo Cafe.
A 1976 graduate of Barnstable High, he received his bachelors degree from Suffolk University in 2006 and is a graduate of the class of 2015 Community Leadership Institute.
David is a founding member and immediate past Chair of Calmer Choice and as such was the United Way recipient of the Ron Reed Award for Dedication to a Board. David is also an active member of the YMCA Teen Achievers steering committee, the current Clerk Trustee of the Cape Cod Chamber, a Mentor for SCORE as well as EForAll and most recently joined the board of Leadership Cape Cod.
As a philosophy, David embraces the concept of a “hand up” rather than a hand out. “While we absolutely need to feed the hungry and offer shelter to the homeless, I support those efforts that empower, educate and mentor those that want to help themselves.’ “I admire WE CAN for that and am proud to join their ranks.”
David lives in West Barnstable with his beautiful wife Pam, and his lovely daughter Kate.
